Drive-by shooting in Spokane Valley cul-de-sac shatters window

UPDATED: Wed., Nov. 18, 2020

Detectives have not identified a motive for an early morning drive-by shooting that appeared to be targeting at houses or apartments.

Wednesday just before 1:40 a.m., Spokane Valley deputies responded to reports of shots being fired in the 2700 block of North Robie Court , according to a Spokane County Sheriff’s Office news release.

Deputies found spent shell casings on the ground and contacted residents in the cul-de-sac. A garbage can appeared to have been hit, but none of the houses had damage, the release said.

A window of an apartment on East Marietta Avenue was shattered and a bullet hole was in a nearby wall, though no one in the apartment was injured, according to the release.

Home surveillance video shows what appears to be an SUV pull slowly into the cul-de-sac and stop. Occupants of the SUV fire several shots before driving away. As the suspects leave the cul-de-sac, two more gunshots fire before the SUV turns east onto Marietta, the release said.

Deputies are asking anyone with information about this incident to call Crime Check at (509) 456-2233 and reference #10152605.
